7 yards (Conversational distance)
12 yards (the furthest shot in my house)
35 yards (what I consider to be max range of non-flight control buckshot.)
each target was shot with two shells, aimed center mass.
I was mildly impressed. even at 35 it wasn't dropping pellets off an FBI torso. recoil was very light, about like a no.8 shot target shell. maybe a smidge lighter even. (keep in mind this only has 2/3rd ounces of shot) I would have felt better with a shorter wad, a proper shotcup and a full 9 pellets, they could have done it.
the extra round is nice, as is the cheap price. but I don't consider this to be a spectacular load. I get much better performance out of my chosen federal shells. but if they offered these with a light 7/8th ounce slug with an M/V around 1350-1400 they would be my main slug load. as it stands, I'm keeping them in the tube for now. they passed my lower limit test and I got 40 rounds of them.
the super light recoil means that if you have a smaller wife, or a recoil sensitive one (or maybe you're the recoil sensitive one. you daisy.) these would make an excellent choice. and at $0.50 a shot, you can afford to buy a lot for live fire practice as well.
I might grab some of the double ball loads next time i'm through as well. just to play with. I think I saw a minishell version. and I very much like having the extra shot.
